Reaching High - 130 lbs - I CAN DO THIS!!

Another weight loss blog?!?!  Sigh.

I know, people are writing weight loss blogs everywhere on the net.  That's cool, feel free to move on and ignore me.  I won't care.  MUCH.

I'm finally going to lose the weight for ME.

I've never set my goal to the ultimate weight I COULD be at.  I always set incremental goals.  But something feels different in me now.  I want to know what it's like to weigh 130 pounds.

Will I feel different?  Most likely, at least about my body and how I eat and exercise.  This will be an experiment and I'm going to do it sort of Tim Ferriss style.  (Never heard of Tim?!  Gotta check him out.  He be crazy.  I'm not as crazy as him but I'm going to try to be fearless in trying new things like he does!)

I will be stepping out of my comfort zone to see what works best for me.  I've never tried pilates or boot camp...why not?!  Let's give it a go.  Never stuck with kettle bells for more than one week.  Why not try it for 3 straight to see what happens!??!  I've done exactly ONE spin class and almost passed out from it, seems like now will be a good time to try again.  Train for a marathon!?  Now we're getting a little eager but we'll see what happens.  I'll post reviews here about trying new weight loss venues for those other fitness beginners out there.

I have realized that the only thing standing between me and the weight I want to be is myself.

I would love to blame someone husband, my dogs...they're easy targets! But it's not their fault.  It's all me.  I'm the only one putting food in my mouth and I'm the only one who can choose to get OFF my butt and do something about it.

Here goes a crazy journey.  Step one, and blog post number two, will be a game plan for the next month that includes how I'm going to begin this experiment.  Since the hubs and I are still training for our half marathon that will take place on January 19, I think the first step is going to be all about food!

Stay tuned.
